Friends (from left) Haley Kurisky and Sarah Seong enjoyed the Luke Bryan concert at the Houston Rodeo & Livestock Show in March. 

Now that the Rodeo is over, it’s hard to come to terms with going to concerts that won’t feature fried Oreos, cowboy boots and some Mutton Bustin’. But there are tons of things to do and see this April, so let’s keep the music spirit going!

Apr. 1-2: Houston Whatever Fest @ Downtown Houston
An event held in downtown that focuses on music, art, comedy, and more. Musicians include Asher Roth, the Cold War Kids, AWOLNATION, and Ghostface Killah. 

Apr. 1: Mister Wives and Panic! At the Disco @ Toyota Center
Panic! is a #throwback and Mister Wives is a much newer band, so go see the intersection of these two sounds!

Apr. 7: Steve Martin and Martin Short @ Smart Financial Centre
This comedy duo is coming together for a one-night-only performance of their comedy show “An Evening You Will Forget for the Rest of Your Life.” You can’t miss it!

Apr. 8: Ariana Grande @ Toyota Center
Ariana has been on fire lately, and with songs like “Side to Side” and “Into You” playing nonstop on the radio lately, you’ll be able to sing along to every song. 

Apr. 10: Jojo @ Warehouse Live
It has been a while since Jojo has performed, but with classics like “Leave (Get Out)” and “Too Little Too Late,” her concert is sure to be a fun one. Chances are, you’ll see me there. 

Apr. 14: Madeon @ Stereo Live
Madeon is an electronic music producer and DJ from France, and tickets are only $20, so it’s a deal. 


Haley Kurisky enjoyed the Blink-182 concert at the Houston Rodeo & Livestock Show in March. 

Apr. 19: Desiigner @ Warehouse Live
To see the artist who sings “Panda” live, check out this reasonably-priced concert at the always-fun Warehouse Live. 

Apr. 20: Billy Currington @ House of Blues
For all the country music fans missing the Rodeo, I’ve thrown in a show for you. Billy Currington is a popular country music artist who didn’t get the chance to perform at the Rodeo this year. 

Apr. 27: Chamillionaire @ Scout Bar
Scout Bar is a venue unknown to many Houstonians, but Chamillionaire is a throwback artist that many know. He’s originally from Houston and often raps about the city. This concert is sure to be mildly entertaining, at the very least. 

Apr. 29: Tom Petty and the Heartbreaks ft. Joe Walsh @ Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion
Having seen both Tom Petty and Joe Walsh in concert, I can attest that they both put on a great show, with good musicianship. If you like live music (especially rock), you’ll have a good time. 

Apr. 30: Lil Wayne @ Revention Music Center
Lil Wayne is a fan favorite rapper, and tickets are only $60. He will likely perform all his classic hits, so it’s definitely worth it to check it out.
